Authors Coalition Survey
The Author Coalition Survey MUST BE COMPLETED for your application to be processed. PLEASE READ AND COMPLETE.
For the past year, Novelists Inc. has been working with many
other author groups as part of the Authors Coalition to reclaim
non-title specific royalties from photocopies made abroad. With
your help, in the past year Novelists, Inc. has collected approximately
$20,000, which has allowed us to publish our newsletter, has allowed us to run our yearly First Word conferences open to all novelists, to produce the ebook publishing information binder which anyone can download at our NINC web site, as well as continue to make available key monthly articles from our NINK newsletter to anyone who visits our web site.
of the money collected is determined by the responses that we
get from the genre survey below; your prompt and accurate answers
will determine how much money we receive in the coming year.
Please check the categories to which you belong, i.e., in which
you qualify as a published author. (Please do not check more than
one genre for one piece of work, i.e., the same book cannot qualify
you as both a nonfiction author and a textbook author. You should,
however, check either or both formats, as appropriate.) For purposes
of this survey, a "published" work means that 1) the work is reasonably
capable of being photocopied abroad and is not self-published,
or 2) if the work is self-published, that there have been no fewer
than 1,000 copies sold, that the work is commercially distributed
outside the U.S. and is reasonably capable of being photocopied
abroad. For purposes of this survey, author-subsidized publications
shall be considered self-published. We know that the list is not
inclusive, but all Coalition members must use this list because
this is how foreign reprographic rights organizations conduct
their surveys to determine what kinds of non-title specific words
are being photocopied.
Nonfiction book author (If
you checked this box, you must also check one or more of
the sub-types below. Do not check more than one box for
one piece of work, i.e., the same book cannot qualify you
as both a Textbook and Nonfiction Other author; however,
you may check two or more boxes for two or more different
pieces of work.)
Textbook author (instructional material)
Academic author (scholarly work primarily
for other academicians)
